The latest white papers on the NHS focus on stimulating innovation in the delivery of primary care and removing barriers to further development Some of this innovation relates directly to prescribing in primary care, and in this article the authors speculate on what might happen if the prescribing initiatives referred to in the white papers were extended and disseminated more widely.
The initiatives which might have the biggest impact are those encouraging closer collaboration between general practitioners and community pharmacists and those aiding extension of the current nurse prescribing scheme in primary care.
Both offer considerable opportunities to improve primary care, but both bear some potential risks.
